Pool Side

Scrapbook Layout  - Pool Side -

Hello everyone,

I am always eager to use the new cut files from The Cut Shoppe,  this week's new releases featured this scallop pattern that just inspire me to create  a page to document this picture of my daughter on out Ecuador vacation.

a stitched large title (one of my fave techniques)

Since this layout started with the picture as inspiration, I used the  Cut Shoppe's Summer Fun and Sun cut file to create the title.  By setting the Cameo to perforate the words, and then cut them with a offset added,  i was able to obtain an easy guide for my stitching.  The title was then added with foam glue dots to the mat.

To recreate the water movement and color, I used the Cut Shoppe's Sketchy Scallops to create the background.   I set the edit points of the cut file to a triangle to obtain the shape.  Once cut on white carstock, a light coat of different shades of blue shimmer watercolor were applied.     The picture is framed with pieces from The Cut Shoppe's Snapshot Digital collection.

To complete the background, the cut-out was stitched to the layout so that the edges of the cut will lift to create  movement.  To add extra interest around the page, a small cluster was added at the corner of the cut-out using cut-out pieces from the Cut Shoppe's Snapshots Digital collection.

Here is a look at the completed layout..

I really love the colors on the layout, they scream summer and fun.  To check the cut files and the digital collection just click on the Cut Shoppe and you will be directed to their store.

As always let me know if you have any questions about the layout.

Till next time, 

Happy Crafting!!
